Nearly my entire nest egg sits in TIPS and I-Bonds.

The debt downgrade certainly didn't make me want to sell.

Like most addictions, you can't fix a debt problem if you can't admit to a debt problem.

What Are the Stages of Addiction Recovery?

Stage 1-Awareness and Early Acknowledgement

* This stage is marked by an awareness of the addiction and that action is needed to address the issues. This process involves a shifting of perspective from outright denial to a willingness to address the issue.

You should put it all in treasuries calls!

I'm content just owning them until maturity.

I've said this before, but if I am a fool for owning them then at least I won't require a greater fool. ;)

CP said...

Why would you want to bet against the existence of greater fools?!

I am not betting against greater fools. I am simply not relying on them. Big difference!
